I think I've decided to go with the Orient for my husband. I costs a bit more than he would like me to spend but I like it and I believe he will really enjoy it too once he has it. I'm trying to figure out if I should go with the black (which is actually more of a dark gray) or the blue dial (which is miore of a turquoise color):

What are your thoughts/preferences?

It it were me, I'd say black. The turquoise is just a little too bold for me and would be hard to match to what I usually wear during the week (suits and business casual). But these are just my tastes--I'm sure you're a better judge than me of what you husband will like!

I would go with the black on this one. The blue isn't so great looking, and the black is more of a dark gray as you said. I like this color much better. It's more versatile and would go better with suits and such. I hope this helps. Good luck with the watch purchase, and please let us know what you decided.

the blue dial look more like a dark greenish-turquoise, imo not the best looking color for flexible wear...black is the safer and more appealing choice.

fyi, roachman's is out of the black dial, you can get it from another seller, LI Watches is an authorized Orient dealer and is giving a small holiday discount:

but how s your husband's eyesight? these type of ana-digi's have a dark LED window. if he's nearsighted or has problems reading stuff in low-light, this may not be the right type of watch for him.

I used the Roachman link for a quick reference to both watch colors. I would be buying from LI. I think my husband's eyesight is pretty good. I have not been able to find another ana-digi watch close to $100 that is nice looking and of good quality. I do not want to buy him another Timex and I don't find the G-Shocks to be very appealing. I like the look of some of the Seiko Sporturas and the Citizen Skyhawks but they are more $$ than I can spend. If you have any other suggestions of ana-digis that I should be considering that are around the same price as the Orient (on sale) that I am looking at I would love to hear about them.

:thanks
